Knovel Adds Engineering Cases to Showcase Real Problem Solving

Knovel (, an online resource that helps engineers find reliable technical information faster, announced it has launched Engineering Cases, a regular content feature that aims to bridge the knowledge gap for engineers by sharing examples of best practices, rules of thumb, and new uses of applications or technologies. The articles, which are written by engineers and reviewed by experienced editors, highlight specific examples of how engineers have applied innovative and fresh approaches to both common and uncommon challenges.

Written in a case study format and released on a rolling basis, the articles will focus on four engineering practice areas: mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, product life-cycle management, and sustainable development.

"I've worked in the publishing industry for over 40 years, and my passion is to provide engineers with information and reference material that is a catalyst for innovation as well as a foundation for professional development," says Myer Kutz, editor of Knovel's Mechanical Engineering Cases. "I was eager to work with Knovel to capture examples of the decisions, pressures and actions engineers regularly face. I've recognized a need to document real world engineering experience for years-in fact, I had a similar idea prior to the internet era. I'm pleased that Knovel has created a venue for engineers to share and learn from each other."

Articles will initially appear free of charge at Thereafter, articles will be made available through Knovel's web-based application to ensure the collection is accessible to thousands of engineers, engineering managers, and students who search Knovel each day.
